After reading the glowing reviews I picked this over a known restaurant quantity - Aqua Terra - also in downtown Buford, GA - for a couples night out with friends. My mistake #1. We had an early reservation - almost no one in the place when we arrived and we were seated by the Mgr. in a corner, square table,... More

A unique old building nestled in old town Buford, amongst history and rebuilding. Located not far from the new Sylvia Beard Theatre, this place is a real treat. Make sure you go on the weekends for piano music and cocktails. Then you will be whisked to your table for a divine menu, with Parmesan crusted filet, crab legs, pasta and... More

We went to Adam's Restaurant for two reasons; it was near the Sylvia Beard Theatre, and it was recommended to us. We were not disappointed. The service was excellent, we didn't have to wait for anything. The food was delicious. We both had She Crab Soup which was excellent. My wife had Scallops which were cooked perfectly; the only downside... More

My husband and I went on a date night last night (6/28/14) and decided to try this place. We were pleasantly surprised. We made reservations online the sane day. The host greeted us by name, the server was very attentive and the food was delicious! The piano player was just an added bonus. Looking forward to another night out at... More

This is definitely a trip worth. The restaurant is in Down Town Buford Historic District. You feel welcome right when you walk in. The staff is excellent and this does make your Dinner experience that much better. The food was good, my calfs liver was dry but tasty, but everything else was excellent . The piano player is very good... More

The maitre d' greated us upon arrival, confirmed our reservation and walked us to our seat. Matt was our waiter and very knowledgeable about the venue history as well as the menu. Matt even gave us a tour of the lower level and we attempted to find the ghost (friendly)...no luck. We didn't order any appetizers but some certainly did... More

Went here for a romantic dinner with my husband. Bar was nice, fried calamari was good and they had a piano player who was great. After a drink at the bar we asked for a romantic table which was right in the picture window where there was no AC (88 degrees during the day), they offered to move us but... More

I have eaten at many steakhouses through the years and this one in Buford is excellent. The filet is to die for as it is soooo good! It is just as good as any filet I have had in any country or USA. You can cut it with a fork! It is tender and prepared the way you like it.... More

We usually eat at Bone's in Buckhead. However, we were excited to find a great steakhouse in Buford, which is near our home on Lake Lanier. The filet is as good as any Buckhead steakhouse, and their sea bass is to die for. We would also love their lobster appetizer. The place is hidden in downtown Buford, and it has... More

The Gorgonzola crusted filet is amazing!! This is a great date night venue. Charming and upscale in the heart of Buford. Several friends recommended to us last year and since our first time visit there it has been our favorite! There is also a speak easy in the basement with live band on weekends for the more mature crowd.
